The pastor at a black church in Flint, Michigan interrupted Donald Trump when he was speaking during his visit when the Republican nominee mentioned his rival Hillary Clinton — but it appears the pastor may have been looking for a squabble, according to Fox News.
“Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us for what we’ve done in Flint, not to give a political speech,” stated Rev. Faith Green Timmons of the Bethel United Methodist Church.
Trump respectfully responded, “Oh, oh, oh, OK, that’s good. Then I’m going to back on Flint. OK.”
Trump visited Flint, Michigan on Wednesday to learn more about the drinking water crisis that has plagued that city since 2014. Clinton campaigned in the city during the primaries.
The next morning, Trump spoke to Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” and speculated that Timmons planned to interrupt him.
“When she got up to introduce me she was so nervous she was shaking,” Trump stated. “So, she had that in mind. There’s no question about it.”
Fox News’s Ed Henry also reported Thursday morning that Timmons appeared to be itching for a fight because of a Facebook post she had posted prior to Trump’s visit but later deleted.
Part of the post read, “HE WILL NOT USE US, WE will EDUCATE HIM!!!”
